Set against the stunning vistas of the Alberta Rocky Mountains, HEARTLAND is a sprawling family drama that follows the Fleming sisters Amy (Amber Marshall) and Lou (Michelle Morgan) and their grandfather Jack (Shaun Johnston), through the highs and lows of life on a horse ranch. In Series 5, Ty realizes that in order to move forward with his life and his relationship with Amy, he has to make some tough decisions. Lou grapples with the realities of motherhood and the possibility of going back into the workforce when money becomes tight. Tim seeks out his long lost son to establish a relationship and must figure out a way to tell his daughters they have a brother. Jack will remain the rock of Heartland, gently (and sometimes not so gently) helping his family deal with the ups and downs they experience in their lives. Jack also takes some risks and learns to face his own fears.
